Critic Reviews for Bridget Jones's Diary
As a film, however, item misses its mark, failing to capitalize on the staccato rhythms and sardonic wit of Bridget's inner life.
It's so aggressive you don't even have to like it; the movie likes itself well enough for the both of you.
Ms. Zellweger makes the most of what she's given and manages to triumph time and again over her pratfalls and public rump displays. In a word, she's terrific.
This ultra-hyped adaptation of the ultra-successful Helen Fielding novel sends you out with a smile on your face.
It's Zellweger's unselfishness that sells the movie. How many other young actresses would be willing to let a movie make fun of their fat thighs?
Audience Reviews for Bridget Jones's Diary
Zellweger is quite adorable in this heartwarming romantic comedy that compensates for its relative predictability with a lot of charm and heart, and it is also very nice to see how the great songs heard in the film punctuate what happens on screen with a good deal of sensibility.
Excellent adaptation of the Helen Fielding novel. Bridget is unlucky in love, a little overweight, smokes too much and has an embarrassing mother. This is her lucky year - two men but will she chose Mr. Right? I love the fighting scene in the street. Great cast. Funny rom com. You just sympathise with Bridget all the way, singleton in her 30s with smug married couples. Mark Darcy is dreamy. I find it amusing that they picked Colin Firth because he played Mark Darcy in Pride and Prejudice.

|Bridget Jones:||And that was it. Right there. Right there, that was the moment...

|Mark Darcy:||Mother, I do not need a blind date. Particularly not with some verbally incontinent spinster who smokes like a chimney, drinks like a fish, and dresses like her mother.|
|Bridget Jones:||Interviewer: What do you think about the El Nino phenomenon? Bridget: It's a blip. Latin music's on its way out.|
